"The Torso" is the unifying theme of an eclectic group show featuring 11 artists working in a variety of media. Unlike the more popular genres of landscape, still life and portraiture, the torso is an oddly idiosyncratic form, replete with contradictions and ambiguity. Its stunted, limbless disfiguration suggests physical violence, sadomasochism, a sense of incompleteness.

A nude torso of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, went on public display in New York on Thursday -- the first time the alluring marble sculpture from the 1st century BC has been seen outside her mythical birthplace. With her classic figure and glowing patina, "Aphrodite Anadyomene," or Aphrodite emerging from the sea, literally came out of the Mediterranean. The 3-foot-tall torso was recovered by divers at Na Paphos in 1956 on the southwest coast of Cyprus.

Use light weights in this exercise for a convenient, fast and effective way to work the fronts and backs of your arms at the same time. Remember to pull your abdominal muscles in to support your spine in this forward bend. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Grasp a pair of 3- to 5-pound dumbbells, bend your knees slightly and lean forward so your torso is almost parallel to the floor. Keep your elbows next to the sides of your torso. Straighten your right arm behind you until your elbow is straight and next to your body.

FASHION Week started here on Monday with more talk about the models than the clothes they were wearing. Debate is raging over whether reed-thin models should be banned from the runways (as they were in Madrid last week) because they might encourage eating disorders.

The College of Cardinals elected an ultraconservative pope earlier this week under a ceiling replete with genitals, breasts and buttocks that apparently gave no offense. Good thing Michelangelo painted his Sistine Chapel masterpieces in Rome and not Venice -- California, that is.
